I hope you all had a good Easter Sunday if you celebrate – and if you don’t I hope you at least got a bank holiday out of it. We’ve had a lovely long weekend so far and it’s a bank holiday here today, so who knows what I might manage to finish this week coming – after all I got another book off the long runners list this week so that’s progress. I’m also having a good go at getting through the April NetGalley releases I have – I hesitate to even write that down, but I’m trying!

Well I went into two bookshops on our trip to London on Saturday looking for a specific book with no luck. I’ve now got it reserved at Waterstones Gower Street – but as I haven’t paid for it yet that doesn’t count right? So it’s just one preorder. Check me.
Bonus photo: Easter Sunday afternoon in the countryside with the little dog after a lovely family meal. Exactly how I like a religious holiday.

Susanna Hoffs from The Bangles? Has she written a book?
The very one! Yes it came out last week and is a novel called This Bird Has Flown and is about a 33 year old one hit wonder pop star who takes a trip to London and meets an Oxford Professor called Tom Hardy on the plane…
I’ve just got to the plane – so can’t tell you much more than that yet!
